Real threat to our children

Directing attention to climate change can distract from what’s at the root of the challenge.  The challenge is and has always been the lack of knowledge, awareness of interdependence and sense of oneness.
“About 29,000 children under the age of five – 21 each minute – die every day, mainly from preventable causes. More than 70 per cent of almost 11 million child deaths every year are attributable to six causes: diarrhoea, malaria, neonatal infection, pneumonia, preterm delivery, or lack of oxygen at birth.”
Much of these are preventable.  These children don’t die from climate change; they are permitted to die by a world of people too distracted by their delusion of a contracted sense of self.  They are permitted to die by the lack of awareness of our interdependence with each other and with the universe.  They are permitted to die from the lack of sense of oneness.
Hosea 4:6 says: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
